If you have never had this treatment, it may come off as too good to be effective. But once you grasp the science behind it, there will never be going back. 

What is EPAT?

Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment technology approved by the FDA for orthopedic musculoskeletal disorders

EPAT is an acronym for Extracorporeal pulse activation technology. It is a form of therapy that uses extracorporeal therapy shock waves. (1) The acoustic pressure waves do the following:

  • enhance lymph and blood circulation
  • stimulates metabolism rate
  • accelerate body’s healing process
  • stimulate vasodilation and neo-angiogenesis
  • induces breakdown of adhesions and scar tissues

These are the genesis of a speedy regeneration of damaged tissues and body healing. 

What Is an EPAT Treatment Session Like?

EPAT is an in-office treatment. It is quick; it takes 5-15 minutes. However, the duration of your sessions will depend on what condition or injury is being treated.  

During a session, one of the doctors will apply a coupling gel on the skin area to be treated. After the gel application, the doctor will use a handheld applicator to release pressure waves. The doctor will move the applicator in circular motions as it releases the pressure waves. 

The intensity of the pulse will start slow. It will then be increased gradually until the desired intensity is achieved. 

EPAT treatment does not need you to be under anesthesia. It is generally well-tolerated. 

With this therapy, you do not have to worry about falling behind your schedule after treatment. You can bear weight immediately after that. And, you will be able to perfectly resume everything after 24-48 hours.

Depending on the intensity of the injury or condition, patients may have 2-4 sessions per week. You will start to see more noticeable and tangible benefits after 3 EPAT sessions. 

Note: The speed at which benefits come to vary from patient to patient. Some patients start experiencing pain relief almost immediately after their first session. For some, it may take weeks to feel the benefits. 

What are Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology Benefits 

This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of sound waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhance blood circulation and accelerate the healing process

EPAT does not need you to be under anesthesia. It is generally well-tolerated. It is an alternative treatment to traditional methods. (2) Many traditional methods such as surgery may cause further damage to the affected area, which is already suffering from poor blood flow, tissue and injury overuse, and weakness.

Here are some of the treatmet benefits you will enjoy. 

EPAT and Pain Relief

EPAT enhances the regenerative potential of the affected area. It provides patients suffering from acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain with many benefits. 

Other than relieving or reducing pain, it will:

  • Accelerates the healing process
  • Enhance blood circulation and flow
  • Treats the source of injury or pain
  • Restores mobility (especially those suffering from decreased ankle movement)
  • Stimulates the metabolism

We recommend it to people seeking immediate relief from ankle or heel pain. On receiving the pressure waves from EPAT treatment, the damaged tissue gradually regenerates, therefore, healing you from pain. 

Who Are Good Candidates of Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology?

EPAT is the ideal treatment designed for a broad range of pain management and podiatric issues. The best candidates for this therapy are people suffering from acute and chronic pain or people with:

  • Achilles pain
  • Foot pain
  • Trigger points
  • Neck pain
  • Neuromas
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendon pain
  • Tendinitis, including Achilles tendinitis

An impressive over 80% report to have a significant pain reduction or to be completely pain-free after EPAT. 

Results and Recovery 

This non-invasive outpatient procedure represents breakthrough regenerative treatment options for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions

With EPAT treatment, you can expect a faster healing process. You may have mild discomfort or redness on the treated area. 

It may feel like mild bruising on the treated area. This problem will heal in a few days. 

No casts or bandages are required after the treatment. 

Patients report feeling reduced chronic muscle pain after the treatment. However, there will be a significant change after a month of treatment. It may take up to four weeks to experience the full benefits. 

Complete treatment takes longer because EPAT treatment sessions aim at healing from the cellular level. To regenerate cells from deep within definitely takes longer. 

 The sound waves cause microtrauma or very tiny and controlled injuries in the bone or soft tissue. This ignites the body’s natural healing process. By this, it encourages the formation of new blood vessels. In turn, new blood cells support the transfer of more blood cells to the injured part, hence supporting quicker healing. 

EPAT Pros 

After treatment, damaged cells gradually regenerate, and damaged tissues eventually heal

 When we say that the Treatment is almost too good to be true, we are talking about these benefits:

  • No anesthesia needed this well-tolerated treatment
  • No scarring post-EPAT
  • Non-invasive
  • Safe and hence FDA_approved
  • No risk of infection
  • No downtime, almost immediate results
  • Easier and Faster healing
  • Impressive success percentages
  • Virtually no severe side effects

The benefits of the treatment are impressive. It is not something you get with many other treatments.

Getting Ready for EPAT

You have already booked your extracorporeal pulse activation technology. So what next? How do you get ready for yout appointment? How do you ensure to enhance the benefits of EPAT? 

We recommend that you keep off anti-inflammatory medication for at least 7 days before your EPAT treatment day. Among the medications, you should avoid over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen, Aleve, aspirin, and naproxen. 

Tylenol is allowed. It is not an anti-inflammatory. 

Why is it essential to discontinue the use of anti-inflammatories one week before your EPAT appointment?

EPAT produces an inflammatory effect to support the speedy recovery of the damaged tissue. Taking anti-inflammatory drugs would mean one thing: inhibition of the inflammatory properties of EPAT. 

 Besides, keep off blood thinners for two weeks before your appointment. 

EPAT Aftercare Instructions 

Your doctor will provide you aftercare instructions after your treatment.

I’m taking 4 EPAT sessions in a week to treat my heel pain at E-vita. The staff has been good to me. They clear all your doubts about the treatment without any sign of irritability

Miranda Barrington

Tennis froze my shoulder and I still didn’t want to stop. A guy from the club told me about EPAT and how he takes therapy to deal with his pain. So there I was, demanding relief from E-vita’s people. And I’m lucky that I got enough relief for my wife to stop being worried.

Sean Anderson, Real Estate Developer

The best part about my experience with my EPAT treatment at E-vita was its people. They are genuinely there to help people and it makes me re-establish my faith in healing after seeing their zest. Great team!
